Description Toralf 2001-11-16 04:35:12 EST
Description of Problem:
Suspend + resume fails on Toshiba Satellite Pro 4600 with Red Hat Linux
7.2; it worked fine with version 7.1.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How Reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log in as root
2. /etc/init.d/netfs stop 
3. apm -s
4. Press power/suspend/resume button to resume

Actual Results:
The following message appears:

The system boots upon pressing a key.

Also, LED status after suspending doesn't look quite right to me

Expected Results:
System resumed.

Additional Information:
System default /etc/sysconfig/apmd used. The problem does not occur if some
time consuming operation, like "netfs stop", takes place during suspend

ext3 file system is being used.

Comment 2 Toralf 2001-11-16 04:50:02 EST
Workaround: Install attached script as /etc/sysconfig/apm-scripts/apmcontinue

The drawback is that this slows down suspend process, sometimes unnecessarily;
the additional wait is really only necessary if one or more sleep commands
weren't already executed, e.g. as a part of netfs shutdown.

The joys of broken BIOSes...
About 80% of the current apmscript is workarounds for broken BIOSes, guess 
adding one more won't hurt.

Workaround (DELAYSUSPEND option in /etc/sysconfig/apmd) added in -36.
